It is the hiding place Boo Radley uses for his gifts to Jem and Scout.

The tree is on the Radley property, so at first the children are afraid to touch what they find in the hole. But once they don't die from the chewing gum, they decide to accept all the items as safe. The hole is their first connection to Arthur as a nice man.
